Hello Everyone,

 

It has been a while. I got a little caught up in a million different things and I haven't been doing a great job of blogging all of these great weddings. Well, thats gonna change. Expect to see more of these again. In fact, you will be seeing a whole bunch of these this week as I get caught up. Anyways, lets get into this awesome set of photos.

 

Kelsey and Michael tied the knot in Sedona, Arizona. Which for anyone that has been there knows, it is one of the most beautiful places in the country. Between the spectacular red mountains to the cozy weather, I enjoy any excuse I can get to go up north. Their wedding was held at  The Agave (agaveofsedona.com). The Agave is a beautiful venue with panoramic views of the incredible red rocks of Sedona. Kelsey and Michael's wedding was fun, emotional and beautiful. Enjoy.

 

As always, music is a huge inspiration for my work and I have included a song from what inspired the work you are about to see.

 

 

Necklace. This was obviously taken right at the beginning of the day. Kelsey's maid of honor put this necklace on her.

Photographer's Note: Taken with my 50mm f1.2 at f1.8. Natural light coming directly from the window behind me. 

 

The Dress. Kelsey's mother helps tie up the back of her dress.

Quick Bridal Portrait. We shot this off right before we left to head over to The Agave.

Almost show time. Michael adjusting his cuff right before he walks down the isle.

Photographer's Note: Taken with my 50mm f1.2. Natural light from the window. We had some occasional cloud cover so we had a little bit of a back and forth in the available ambient light when shooting indoors.

 

Giving her away. I think my favorite part of weddings is seeing some of the emotional family moments. Getting married is a huge milestone for a couple but it is also a really important moment for family. 

Photographer's Note: Taken with my Tamron 70-200mm f2.8. Natural light. You will see what I mean about the wildly inconsistent cloud cover in the next photo compared to this.

 

That scenery... Sedona is one of my favorite places to visit and you can get an idea as to why in this image. If anyone from The Agave is viewing this, I tip my hat to you, your venue is gorgeous.

Photographer's Note: Taken with my Tamron 70-200mm f2.8. Natural light. These clouds would come and pass by the second so metering back and forth became a bit of a pain but this was one of the rare instances where the direct sunlight still looked great.

 

The License. 

Photographer's Note:  Canon 50mm f1.2. Taking photos of the signing is usually a bit lack-luster. However, in this situation I had incredible light and the subjects framed the shot perfectly.

 

The Girls.

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm f1.2. Alienbee B800 through a large softbox directly behind camera set high and directed down. 

The Newly Weds. 

Photographer's Note: Shot with an assortment of lenses and all of this is natural light.

 

The Newly Weds with their best friends who also happened to be the best man and the maid of honor.

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm f1.2 Natural Light

 

The First Dance.

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm f1.2. Speedlight bounced off the ceiling to the right.

Grandfather Granddaughter Dance.

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm f1.2 Speedlight bounced off the ceiling to the right. I cranked my ISO to allow more ambient light in from behind them.

 

Mother Son Dance.

Photographer's Note: Canon 50mm f1.2. Speedlight bounced directly off the ceiling.

 

PARTYING.

Photographer's Note: Canon 17-40mm F4. Speedlite bounced all over the place.

 

I hope you enjoyed this set of photos. Leave me a comment! I would love to hear what you guys think.

 

Thank you,

Ethan
